ONTARIO PROVINCIAL CHAMPIONSHIPS TECHNICAL INFORMATION
This competition will be run according to current FIE regulations. The Directoire Technique reserves the right to apply or modify these regulations as they see fit as according to section t.139 of the FIE Rules.
All participants are required to have an active Competitive CFF/OFA Fencing License or an equivalent license from the participant’s home federation. All Canadian fencers are expected to hold a Canadian license. You may purchase/renew your license via the Canadian Fencing Federation website in real time.
All international participants are required to present documentation confirming that they hold an active membership with their home federation, or a current, active FIE license.
Seeding into pools of 6 or 7 will be based first upon HPP rankings for Cadet, Junior and Senior categories. CFF Domestic ranking will be used for athletes not registered with the CFF HPP, with adjustments to be made only by the Directoire Technique (DT) based upon exceptional circumstances (e.g. former national team member without a ranking, foreign fencers). In cases where pools of 6 or 7 are not possible, the DT will determine the most practicable format, while ensuring to optimize competition.
All events will have one round of pools, with all participants promoted. Any events above 64 registrants may have an imposed cut of between 10-20% if necessary to ensure projected finish times, however, at least 64 fencers will be promoted if there are more than 64 competitors. In cases where cuts will be necessary, an announcement and posting will be made before the start of the event. Advancement into Direct Elimination will be ranked on the results from the pools in accordance with FIE rules.
Events are planned as separate events but may be combined if there are fewer than 6 registrants in one gender. If combined, both a combined and separate women’s DE will be held. Should the events occur on separate days, participants of the later event will be notified no later than March 9,2022 and given the option of combining with the other gendered event, or a refund of event fees.
The veterans direct elimination competition, by category, is organized according to the results of the Veteran Open, if there are registered. Separate men’s/women’s age category DE events will be held if there are at least 4 fencers; otherwise, only a combined DE will be held.
- Open Veteran
- 50+ (ages 50 -59)
- 60+ (ages 60 – 69)
Participants that enter in multiple events may be required to fence multiple bouts without breaks. Should conflicts arise, participants may be asked to withdraw from an event.
If you are registered in multiple events, you must CONFIRM your check-in for each event; please do NOT assume that if you are checked into your first event that you are automatically checked into subsequent events.
Results from the Open Veterans, Senior, Junior, Cadet events will be submitted to CFF for domestic rankings.
Any changes outside of these prescribed formats would be due to unusual circumstances to be determined by the DT and will be announced prior to the start of events.
Please refer to the CFF domestic competition equipment standards
